Habitat has incredibly friendly staff, but the short-stay backpacker in Australia should know that its free parking offer means a big likelihood that 40-50% of the guests are young work&travel folks from mostly Europe, who hang around most day, party all evenings throughout the week and don't really leave you any opportunity to find a quiet spot to plan your travel or just read a book. There's a TV room with books. but it's constantly occupied. It would be great if you got a reading room, HQ!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review, we value all our feedback. It's great to hear that our staff made a positive impact on your stay, all our staff here at Habitat strive incredibly hard to make every guests stay a memorable one! I'll pass on your suggestion for a quiet room/reading room, it's a great idea & we appreciate that everyone has different needs when travelling. We hope to see you again here at Habitat HQ!


Nice clean hostel, free breakfast and wifi for length of stay is a nice touch. Modern and clean with decent sized rooms and kitchen, even has an oven which was great! Would have stayed longer but found the hostel very clicky. Many people are long termers so it feels like being back at high school with groupings. Entertainment most nights but wouldn't recommend to lone travellers - hard to mingle.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, it's great to hear you appreciated the free wifi and breakfast, and the cleanliness of the hostel - our staff work hard to keep Habitat HQ at a hight standard. We have a mixture of travellers and Working Holiday makers staying with us, and we do try to make an effort to bring everyone together with events to encourage people to get to know each other, perhaps next time we'll see you up singing at our Karaoke night!
